XGT® is a new 40V | 80V max system of cordless equipment and tools. XGT outpowers, outsmarts, and outlasts the rest. Through Makita’s innovative engineering, the technology within XGT will lead to creating the equipment and tools of the future [Learn More]
Makita takes another step toward a truly cordless job site with Auto-Start Wireless System. AWS® uses Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor. AWS® is intelligent communication that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when trigger-activated by an AWS® tool. When the trigger is released, the dust extractor powers-down. The Makita AWS® dust extractor (XCV08Z) is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries for maximum performance, and users benefit with an expanding AWS® system that includes cordless tools for concrete, metal and woodworking.
The 40V max XGT® Brushless 6-1/2” Plunge Circular Saw Kit (GPS01M1J) delivers precise and more accurate cutting when combined with an optional guide rail system (sold separately). The saw and rail system work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw combines a powerful Makita-built brushless motor with Automatic Speed Change™ Technology, which adjusts cutting speed and torque during the cut for optimum performance.
The saw has a variable speed control dial (2,500 – 4,900 RPM), with soft start and an electric brake for added convenience. Constant speed control enables a consistent smooth finish under load. It has a large 2-3/16” cutting capacity at 90-degrees and 1-1/2” at 48-degrees. It has a bevel capability of -1° to 48° and positive stops at 22.5° and 45°.
For improved efficiency, it is capable of wirelessly starting a connected dust management solution. Auto-start Wireless System (AWS®) utilizes Bluetooth® technology for wireless communication between the tool and dust extractor (sold separately). When the trigger of the AWS-equipped GPS01Z is engaged, the AWS-equipped dust extractor powers-up. When the trigger is released, the dust extractor powers-down. AWS is intelligent communication that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when the tool is running. An AWS transmitter is needed (sold separately).
XGT is a system of equipment, tools, batteries, and chargers utilizing 40v max lithium-ion batteries. XGT is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT is equipped with advanced motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.
